(more) Migrating from MySQL to PostgreSQL

Posted by Fri, 02 Dec 2005 01:59:00 GMT

Christopher Kings-Lynne is getting ready to release 1.0 of his cool project on PgFoundry called, MySQL Compatibility Functions.

What does this provide?

“A reimplemenation of as many MySQL functions as possible in PostgreSQL, as an aid to porting.”

Basically… a bunch of pg/sql functions… to account for all those mysql functions that you all love so much. :-)

For those who feel like they are stuck with MySQL… check this out.’s not too late!

Next Week… I’ll discuss my progress with PostGIS and Ruby on Rails.
